College football | Ohio State's Gene Smith joining playoff selection committee

Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith will be named to the College Football Playoff selection committee, according to a report by ESPN Friday afternoon.

An Ohio State spokesman said Smith could not comment on the report at this time. But ESPN reported that Smith will take the place of Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez, who served the first three years of the playoff. Alvarez is one of three committee members whose terms are ending.

For Smith, in his 12th year as Ohio State athletic director, it might be a role on a new committee, but it probably will seem like old hat. He served on the selection committee for the NCAA men's basketball tournament for five seasons and was the chairman in 2011.

Ohio State has appeared in two of the first three College Football Playoffs, winning the initial one after the 2014 season and losing to Clemson 31-0 two weeks ago in the Fiesta Bowl, a semifinal game. As a member of the committee, Smith would have to recuse himself from discussions about Ohio State, except to provide factual information.
